    Best pasta I have ever had! The lobster is unbelievably delicious, so much so we plan to go again before the end of our trip! Service was wonderful, lovely views whilst your eating too! 10/10 ❤️

    The staff were very attentive and it's a great setting. We ate in several restaurants in Venice and whilst this wasn't the best looking one it served the best food we had. Definitely recommend and would go again without doubt. Superb food

    Ignore anyone that is boring enough to give this place a less than excellent review. Just Go the food and staff are great! From someone that has never posted a review before.

    We had a lovely meal here, food was presented beautifully and very good. Can highly recommend the sea bass, moules , and grilled prawns - portion size was generous. All the waiting staff were attentive, friendly and quick to check all was well. All in all a very nice evening !

    Greated with a small drink, free of charge, and given a limoncello after dinner free of charge. The food was reasonably priced, I had sole fish and my partner had the ravioli. The restaurant does seem to get busy so I would highly recommend booking.

    The staff was wonderful. The food was fresh and delicious. The presentation of the food in beautifully decorated plates was an extra lovely touch.

    We were welcomed and the server recognized us from our visit last year. The food was good, not expensive and service was excellent. We would visit again

    Delicious food and great service! My only criticism is the harsh strip lighting. The atmosphere would be improved hugely with more subtle lighting or lamps. Otherwise an excellent place to eat.

    Cute authentic restaurant on the edge of the canal. We had a seafood platter for two (which was not on the menu) it was delicious. Only downside was that it didn't have much sides to accompany the seafood. We got one slice of courgette (to share), one disk of aubergine (to share), 2slices of bell pepper each. Would have been nice to have some potatoes maybe. Service was great couldn't fault it.

    Extreme good table service, they borrow us chargers for our phone and they even help us crack the shell of lobster. Free wine shots serve as an appetizer. Fresh lobster and mussels. Venice risotto (Cuttlefish) is great as well. They even gave us small gifts (raw Cuttlefish spaghetti and muffins with gift bags) after our dinning.

    We showed up early for our reservation and our table was waiting. It was overlooking a quiet canal . The servers were very freindly and helpful. The food was great.

    Recommended by trip advisor and the restaurant was even better than stated. Delicious free speciality drinks at beginning and end. The meal chosen was shrimp and mushroom pizza. Every mouthful was delicious and salad with it was fresh. The setting was pure Venice, right next to the canal. The service was friendly and efficient. Great place to go and booking from Australia worked.

    This restaurant was an amazing find. From the moment we walked till the time we left everything was fantastic. The pasta seafood with lobster was outstanding! The waiter even helped crack the lobster. Grilled vegetables were great. The owner stopped by several times to talk with us and even helped us get to the vaporetto which is 3 minutes away. Overall wonderful experience!

    Wow! What a find. It was so lovely to be warmly greeted by the owner of this small and informal restaurant after a hard days walking around Venice. The food was excellent. It was freshly prepared and cooked to order and it was delicious. The location, being on the bank of a large canal was another big plus point. Very romantic. We really enjoyed our meal.
